Wednesday's weeping willows

I was pretty tired going into today's session, so I decided to have a good warm up and to focus on one movement. I got my glute and hip pre-hab done and I also got in three sets of 20 in the wall slides for my scapular health. A good few sets of Overhead Squats followed and I was nice and loose, particularly after my yoga session last night.

My scooping point is still slightly sore, so I focused on Snatch Pulls, trying to get my hips nice and low and locked and then rise them up to initiate the pull.
1x2@40, 40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100
1x1@110, 115, 120, 125

I made a video of some of the heavier lifts. My starting position felt ok and I went heavier than I should have, but I just wanted to see what the weights felt like to be honest. Let me know what you think after watching the video. Also, a big shout out to Cathal Byrd who is lifting tomorrow in the 69kg class in the European under 23's, with Sami Dowling lifting on the Friday in the 85's. Good luck to both because they have trained very hard and have put in their dues.

To leave things on a brighter note and to cheer the lads over in Poland, here are some more classic comedy moments:
